Standoff

Standoff follows Fred Gómez Carrasco, a drug cartel kingpin and orchestrator of the 1974 Huntsville, Texas, prison siege. The siege was one of the most infamous hostage crises in American history and played out in dramatic fashion over eleven days, all in front of a terrified national audience. One hundred hours of audio containing the actual hostage negotiations and the deadly shoot-out tell the story like never before. "Journalist Wes Ferguson... weaves a fascinating yarn using new interviews as well as unearthed tapes of Carrasco’s hostage-negotiation calls. What emerges is a big bold look at a little-known crime story." - Vulture Standoff is a production of Imperative Entertainment and is written, created and hosted by Wes Ferguson. Executive Producer and Story Editor is Jason Hoch. Audio editing and sound engineering by Shaine Freeman and Jason Hoch. Original music is by Max Baca with Flaco Jiménez on accordion and Tony Gonzalez is the music engineer for the original score. The main theme 'Huntsville' is performed by Ray Benson and is from the 1971 Merle Haggard and the Strangers Album, 'Someday We'll Look Back'.

Wondery Presents: Frozen Head


Hosted by Ash Kelley and Alaina Urquhart from the hit show Morbid.


When 90-year-old Laurence Pilgeram drops dead on the sidewalk outside his condo, you might think that’s the end of his story. But, really, it’s just the beginning. Because Laurence and others like him have signed up to be frozen and brought back to life in the future. And that belief will pull multiple generations of the Pilgeram family into a cryonics soap opera filled with dead pets, gold coins, grenades, fist fights, mysterious packages, family feuds, Hall of Fame baseball legends, and frozen heads — lots of frozen heads. From Wondery, comes a story about life, death, and what comes next.
